e-book Hopkins - Everybody's Life is a Hero's Journey cover.jpg

Everybody's Life is a Hero's Journey

A Collection of Short Stories 

The stories, characters and situations in this collection are eclectic, stimulating and uplifting. The title "Everybody's Life is a Hero's Journey" reflects June's belief that, when we look closely, no lives are ordinary. We are all on the hero's path even though some of us stray off it from time to time. The thread loosely connecting the different stories is an underlying message about overcoming adversity in one situation or another.

Most of June's short stories are for adult readers but the children have not been forgotten. June has included a few of the delightful stories she has written for children.

Paperback cover - Ludwig Leichhardt - 26.5_edited.jpg

Ludwig Leichhardt

The Man. The Legend.

To understand Leichhardt, the man, we must begin with Ludwig, the boy.  His father was highly influential and encouraged Ludwig to read, to be diligent, to love nature and to value knowledge above all things. 

Leaving everything he loved behind, the young Leichhardt embarks alone for the colony of New South Wales. In this book, we follow his progress, setbacks, disputes and triumphs in his successful first expedition and his failed second expedition. 

What happened to the man they called "the Doctor"? He and his men and animals disappeared into the unknown continent, leaving barely a trace. Their fate became one of the great unsolved mysteries of European settlement of Terra Australis.  

This enthralling new book on Leichhardt reveals him to be a visionary, a man so single-minded and determined that he would allow nothing to stand in his way of realising his great plan.

A Beautiful Thing

Jesus and the Women Who Loved Him 

We know from the Gospels in the New Testament that there were "many women" following Jesus throughout Galilee and Judea. What do we know about these women? We only gain glimpses of them and yet they are present with Jesus at the most critical times of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. Aside from his disciple John, it is the women who remain loyal and steadfast. 

How can we look beyond these glimpses and find out more about the women who walked alongside Jesus and find answers to questions like the following ones:

  • Who were the women in the Gospels?

  • What were their lives like?

  • In what ways did Jesus interact with these women? How did they with Him?

  • What contributions did the women make to Jesus and His ministry?

Each chapter commences with a fictional short story about the featured woman and the events which shaped her life. A non-fictional section follows with analysis, discussion points and relevant quotations.
